Facilities 50 2009 Back to Reports & survey Listing

How the facilities 50 works

Each post house is ranked on three factors – turnover, producer votes and kit/services. Each of these rankings is then weighted proportionally to create the final listing and overall ranking. 50% of the overall ranking is based on turnover. The producer votes make up 30% of the final score, while the remaining 20% is down to the kit/services provided by the post house

A post house’s kit/services ranking depends on the range and scale of the services it provides. The more extensive the range of kit/services, the higher the score. The total points a company can receive for any one service is capped to stop a company with hundreds of vfx workstations but comparatively few other services, for example, from topping the list on the basis of its vfx alone.

Producer votes
The producer votes are pulled together from different surveys published in Televisual throughout the year. During our ‘Production 100’ survey we ask broadcast indies to name the three post houses they use the most, and the three they rate the most. We ask the same of commercials producers in our ‘Commercials 30’ survey, and we ask corporate producers in our ‘Corporate 50’ survey. On top of this, we receive votes from production managers in our production management survey and also ask film post supervisors to provide their top three post houses.
